News Desk |

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ordered McDonald’s burgers and soft drinks during the lunch break of the al-Azizia and Hill Metal references hearing at the accountability court on Friday. It seems as if he is tired of the staple food given to him in Adiala Jail.

According to a report by a private news channel, the deposed premier asked for fast food, after which Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Chaudhry Tanveer ordered his domestic help to bring the food for his leader. Media reports suggest that Nawaz was seen in a good mood after gobbling up the burgers and had a conversation with the media representatives present on the spot.

The Accountability court II Judge Mohammad Arshad Malik resumed the hearing of two remaining corruption references pertaining to Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship investment on Wednesday which have continued today as well.

Meanwhile, Accountability court continued the cross-examination of star witness and head of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT)—Wajid Zia, in the Al-Azizia and Flagship Investment references. The incarcerated former Prime Minister Nawa Sharif appeared in the court today.

Meanwhile, IHC has accepted Khawaja Harris’s application in which he accused the accountability court Judge Malik of tampering with the record. Earlier, he had threatened to leave the case, if this injustice continued. During the cross-examination of Zia, Haris alleged that accountability court judge Arshad Malik had changed the statement of the witness in Al-Azizia and Flagship Investment references. He accused that Judge changed the already recorded answer at the behest of the NAB prosecutor.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has issued the notice to NAB to appear before the court over the allegations of alteration in the statement of Wajid Zia. Moreover, IHC is set to resume hearing the appeals of Sharif family against their July 6 conviction in Avenfield case on September 10.
